Pretty decent brasserie, almost French - one of my favorite lunch places

I go often to Mon Ami Gabi in Bethesda, generally for a steak frites and a glass of Côte du Rhone at lunch. It is a good, no nonsense brasserie with good, unfussy food which is nearly what one would get in a Brasserie in Paris. (Lyon is another story...). Unlike most restaurants in America, every... read more

Met clients for dinner here this evening. Walked in the door to a quaint interior, live music, friendly staff & impressive wine list. My first time & I know I will be back. The scallops were amazing!

We were sat outside but right away the cigarettes smoke hit us and after looking the menu we don't see anything interesting so we left and went somewhere else!!!

We have eaten here several times and our last trip was just as good as all the other trips, with one exception. Every steak that I have had has been very good with great sauces. You get steak with frites. All sides are extra. My wife's hanger steak was chewy. That is the first time that that has happened to... More

We went there for a late lunch. We ordered 2 onion soups and escargots. Both dishes were cooked perfectly. We can't wait to go back.

We had two fish entrees. Both were perfectly prepared. Our waitress seemed to know the women at the adjacent table. The contrast in attention was marked and for us not in a good way-to the point of being ignored!

Very impressed by the service recently. In running late for the movie we expressed this to our friendly and handsome waiter [ Hunter]. He promised he would do it and did. He was so effective with the kitchen as well as charming and attentive to us that we did not even feel rushed which would have been our fault anyway.... More

The meal always tastes good, but it could be a lot hotter. This is not the first time I have found this. Still the atmosphere is good and the food for the most part is good

I've eaten several times at Mon Ami Gabi before going to a movie at the Bethesda Row. My favorite is the Steak Frites followed by a small espresso. We were served promptly the Frites were crisp and tasty, and the atmosphere is cozy and bistro-like.
